The personal website of Public Diplomacy and Diaspora Affairs Minister Yuli Edelstein was hacked Tuesday, with anti-Israel slogans posted on the page.
The hackers, who identified themselves as “The Gaza Hacker Group,” wrote “Death to Israel” and other rants against the State of Israel and against Edelstein, the Nana 10 news outlet reported.
“This hacking is an act of terror in every way,” Edelstein said of the incident. He declared that no one could silence his advocacy on behalf of Israel and the Jewish residents of the West Bank.
“We are defeating our enemies every day on all fronts, and it will be the same on the Internet and in the various new media,” he said.
The group of hackers called for an end to excavations under the Temple Mount and settlement construction, the halting of attacks on Gaza, and the release of Palestinian prisoners.
